On November 19, 2020, JSP Acquisition LLC, a wholly owned direct subsidiary of Affiliated Managers Group, Inc., a publicly traded asset management company that has been partnering with leading independent asset management boutiques for over 25 years, acquired Macquarie Investment Management’s minority stake in Jackson Square Partners, LLC (Jackson Square).

This Supplement is not a proxy and is not soliciting any proxy, which can only be done by means of a proxy statement.
In addition, Daniel J. Prislin has announced his retirement from Jackson Square at the end of 2021. He will continue to serve as portfolio manager on the Fund until that time.
Effective December 31, 2020, Christopher J. Bonavico will no longer serve as portfolio manager to the Fund. All references to Mr. Bonavico as a portfolio manager of the Fund are hereby deleted on that date.
